Curative cancer treatment regimens often require cranial irradiation, resulting in lifelong neurocognitive deficiency in cancer survivors. This deficiency is in part related to radiation-induced apoptosis and decreased neurogenesis in the subgranular zone of the hippocampus. We show that lithium treatment protects irradiated hippocampal neurons from(More)
Growth factor enhancement of endothelial cell viability occurs through phosphatidylinositol 3-kinase (PI3K)/Akt-mediated inhibition of apoptosis. The PI3K/Akt signal transduction pathway was activated by both vascular endothelial growth factor and ionizing radiation. Radiation- and vascular endothelial growth factor-induced phosphorylation of Akt was(More)
Platycryptus undatus (De Geer 1778) (Araneae: Salticidae) stalked and seized insects attracted to porch lamps at night at two sites on Cape Cod, Massachusetts. Ordinarily this spider hunts during the day. Few animals exploit artificial lighting at night for tasks that they ordinarily perform exclusively during the day. An example is Platycryptus undatus (De(More)
